Health Care Reform, and the Issues We Face

As we approach the election this fall, it seems like the news media report on little else. Unfortunately, too little news coverage addresses health care reform. That’s wackadoo, because there is still so much to be done to improve the cost, quality, and access for patients within the US health care system.

So let’s talk about the major health policy issues we in the US face. This is Healthcare Triage News.

This episode was adapted from a post Aaron wrote for the JAMA Forum. Links to further reading and sources can be found there: https://newsatjama.jama.com/2016/09/21/jama-forum-re-engaging-in-health-care-reform/

WATCH: Trump signs executive order on health care price transparency

President Donald Trump signs an executive order June 24 that aims to force hospitals to disclose the costs of health care services. The order directs the Department of Health and Human Services to issue a new rule that mandates hospitals reveal the price of procedures in a “patient-friendly” format. Trump also aims to require health care providers tell patients upfront what their out-of-pocket costs will be based on their individual insurance coverage.

Why Does the U.S. Spend So Much on Healthcare? High, High Prices.

American healthcare spending is still WAY higher than pretty much all other industrialized countries. But not that long ago, things were different. The US didn’t spend nearly as much in this realm. What changed? Demographics? More sickness? Nah. Spoiler alert, prices have risen much, much faster than the rate of inflation. We’ve got a few suggestions for getting it under control.

Obamacare and October 1st: Healthcare Triage #1

http://www.healthcare.gov

Healthcare Triage is a new series from Dr. Aaron Carroll and the team behind Crash Course and Mental Floss Videos. In this episode, Aaron gets a visit from noted hypochondriac John Green, and allays some of his fears about Obamacare. He provides an overview of what is going to happen on October 1st, when the Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare, goes into effect. Aaron will talk stuff like individual mandates, subsidies, and the three-legged stool of Obamacare, which is not a real stool. You’ll learn who exactly is affected by the changes on October 1st, get a brief tour of healthcare.gov, and learn a little about alien alternative medicine, which also isn’t even real. The rest of the video is totally real. All this, plus the aforementioned metaphorical furniture should make this pretty hard to resist.
